Viewing Small Text in the Rich Text Preview

Postby jmferris » Sun Jul 13, 2014 5:02 pm

Greetings,

I have been working on a drawing, and I've reached the point where I am going in to add textual notes. The drawing itself is Arch E sized, uses inches as the default unit, and is at 1:1 scale. For dimensions, the default text size is 0.125".

For the dimensions, the text size is spot on. But when I go to the text tool to add notes, I set the text size to what I want - for example, I have to set it to .25 for 0.25" text - and the preview becomes unreadable, because the preview is displaying that as .25 pts or px (not sure which). Needless to say, it makes working with text a little bit of a hassle. So, instead, I've been going in and actually writing the text markup by hand.

What my question is, I am wondering if I am missing something obvious here? I've gone through the application and drawing settings, but I do not see anything that appears to be related to this.

Thanks,

Joseph

Murphy's Law of Posting On A Forum

Immediately after posting, I realized that I was missing a decimal point in my main/default Text Height, so the miniscule text was due to it scaling based on the provided value. All is good now.

Thanks!

Joseph
